    I was under the impression that you had to give a reason for a downvote, but I just tried it on this post (don't worry I removed it again), but I didn't see anything appear for the explanation. Do I have to wait a while for that pop-over to appear? Perhaps that should load quicker, if that's the case.

      It doesn't work for comments and text posts yet. I'm given to understand that that this is being considered for future updates to the site.

      However, even downvotes for snaps don't require a reason given they just invite one. The majority of the downvotes my snaps have received have no reason listed, which suggests strongly to me that someone was simply butthurt and used the downvote to register their disagreement.

        They really should require it.

          I agree, but there's some disagreement about that. My compromise is to make the downvote not count toward rep without a reason listed, but some people don't like that either.

            Well, to be fair, Whatever decision the admins will take concerning the downvote system, there will be unhappy people with it. Best to take the system that the majority of people agrees with, unless we can find a miraculous system that everyone likes...but I'm not seeing it.

              Clearly there's no way to make everyone happy at once, we can only promote those ideas we feel would minimize the promotion of a hostile environment. I'm okay with disagreement on how to approach this, I merely wanted to point out where the conversation has gone so far.
